Install Proton Pass Password Manager on Fedora 40

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Proton Pass Password Manage on Fedora 40. Password managers like Proton Pass provide a secure and convenient solution for generating, storing, and managing your passwords across various devices and platforms. Proton Pass, developed by the renowned Proton team, offers a robust set of features and a user-friendly interface, making it an excellent choice for both novice and advanced users.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Proton Pass on Fedora 40.


Before we dive into the installation process, ensure that you have the following prerequisites in place:

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 40.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • You will need access to the terminal to execute commands. Fedora provides the Terminal application for this purpose. It can be found in your Applications menu.
  • A stable internet connection to download the necessary packages.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Proton Pass Password Manager on Fedora 40

Step 1. Update the System.

To prepare your Fedora 40 system for the Proton Pass installation, open the terminal and run the following command to update your system packages:

sudo dnf clean all
sudo dnf update

The package manager will retrieve the latest package information and prompt you to confirm the update. Press “y” and hit Enter to proceed with the update process. Depending on the number of updates available, this step may take a few minutes to complete.

Step 2. Installing Proton Pass on Fedora 40.

To begin the installation process, visit the official Proton Pass download page using your preferred web browser. On the download page, you will find options for various operating systems and package formats. Since we are installing Proton Pass on Fedora 40, look for the RPM package, which is the standard package format for Red Hat-based Linux distributions like Fedora.

Click on the download link for the RPM package, and your browser will start downloading the file. By default, the downloaded file will be saved in your “Downloads” directory.

wget https://proton.me/download/PassDesktop/linux/x64/ProtonPass_1.17.5.rpm

Once the download is complete, open the terminal and navigate to the directory where the Proton Pass RPM package was saved. Typically, this will be the “Downloads” directory in your user’s home folder. Use the following command to change to the “Downloads” directory:

cd ~/Downloads

Now, you can proceed with installing the Proton Pass RPM package using the following command:

sudo rpm -i ProtonPass_1.17.5.rpm

The RPM package manager will now install Proton Pass and its dependencies on your Fedora 40 system. Once the installation is complete, you can verify that Proton Pass was successfully installed by checking your application menu for the Proton Pass icon, or by running the following command in the terminal:

protonpass --version

This command will display the installed version of Proton Pass, confirming that the installation was successful.
